Felix Finds Christmas (Arr. Slaughter/Tucker)

Unison/Opt. 2-Part

Foreword

During the time I was trying to come up with a concept for this musical, I was driving around town one day, and in my spirit I heard a
whisper Felix Finds Christmas. I immediately thought Well,
who is Felix, and why is he looking for Christmas?

A few minutes later I started thinking about a boy I met years ago at
one of my summer camps. His name was not Felix, but he did share
his story with me over the dinner table one night before worship. It
was an amazing story of how he had spent his life in childrens
homes and various foster homes. He told me that more than anything in the world he had always wanted a last name and to belong to a family. My heart was breaking as I listened to him tell of
all he had been through in his 12 years. The best part of the story
came when he told me that he had recently been adopted by a family
in South Carolina. When he told me the name of the town I said I
had some friends there that he needed to meet. Imagine the shock on
my face when I told him their names and he said, Oh, they are our
next door neighbors! I called my friends and they told me about the
family and how wonderful they were. I was completely blown away!
The memory of that conversation has crossed my mind many times
through the years, but that afternoon in my car I knew the Lord was
leading me to tell his story in this musical.
A few weeks later I went to Uganda, Africa with my friend, Simon
Lawrence. His wife, Amanda, works for America World Adoption
Agency, and they were sponsoring the trip. We visited several orphanages while we there, and the Lord kept confirming in my heart
that the theme of this musical was to center around adoption. I told
Simon and Amanda about my idea, and we all instantly knew it
should be done as a partnership with AWAA. If youre not familiar
with their organization, please go to http://awaa.org and check out
their Storyteller mission trips as well as other aspects of the incredible work they do.

The main thing I hope your kids take away from this musical is that
we are all adopted by God. He made a way through Jesus for us to
be grafted into His family forever. We are all sons and daughters of
the Most High, created to do great things for His Kingdom! We all
have a place where we belong.
Merry Christmas,
Jeff Slaughter

FELIX:

And youre Mr. Yule?

YULE:

Yesiree! And I heard some mighty fine singing when we were outside while
ago. Sounded like a heavenly host of angels! Was that yall?

FELIX:

Yes, sir. We were practicing for our Christmas concert.

Yes! And guess what? Our director, Mr. Fisheltree, gave me a big solo in
one of the songs! Im so excited, but its also really scary, you know, playing by yourself in front of so many people. And I think everybodys getting
jealous because I get to be featured as a solo artist.
Well, since youll be playing a kazoo solo on All I Want for Christmas Is
My Two Front Teeth, I think youre gonna be okay. And, guess what? I
checked, and nobodys jealous.

ly

HOLLY:

(to YULE) See what I mean. Its so hard being famous. People turn on you.

(IVY glares at HOLLY and starts playing All I Want for Christmas Is My Two
Front Teeth on her kazoo.)
Ew!

IVY:

Um, as if! Hes never taken kazoo lessons!

FELIX:

Im just gonna be singing.

Well, it sounds like me and Todd and Carol will have to come check it out!

Guess what? Guess what? I wrote a song for the concert.

IVY:

Well these two helped a little with the lyrics, and Mr. Fisheltree wrote
the music for it, but it was all my idea!

(emotional) Sorry, it already hurts to think about it. But, one day I said to
myself, Todd, which is what I call myself, It is a shame and a disgrace
that with as much joy and love as the Christmas season brings to the world,
that we have to a wait a whole year to celebrate it again!

I dont know. Ive been in the foster system all my life. No one ever told
me what happened to my parents, or why they gave me up.

FELIX:

So, Felix, if youre okay with me askin, what happened to your family?

ir

YULE:

YULE:

Ive lived with a few foster families, but no one ever wanted to adopt me.
And the older you get, the harder it gets. Most people want babies. I
thought there was a family that wanted me a few months ago, but, I guess
they changed their mind. We kinda have our own family here. Ive known
Holly and Ivy most of my life. I guess theyre kinda like my sisters.

FELIX:

Goodness, I just cant imagine that.

YULE:

Thats wonderful. They seem like really sweet girls.

Yeah, and Miss Layhem is really great. Shes always trying to plan special
things for us.

YULE:

Oh, she told us. And I can tell she loves yall very much.

(trying to lighten things up) So, tell me! What sorta things is Mr. Felix
into? Sports? Books? Music? Did I hear the girls say you wrote a song for
the Christmas show?

Yes sir. They helped me with the words, and Mr. Fisheltree helped write the
music.
Well, mercy me, boy! Thats great!

FELIX:

YULE:

I really like to sing and, Ive always wanted to learn to play guitar. That
one Todd played was really cool!
Yeah, he loves that guitar. Had it all his life. And hes really pretty good.
(gets an idea) You know, he teaches lessons.

YULE:

(excited) He does? Maybe he could teach me! But, it would be hard. We


dont have a guitar here, and I couldnt pay for lessons.

Well, you just never know, Felix! Anythangs possible! So, whats your
song about?

YULE:

Kinda what I was telling you about earlier. Since we dont have families of
our own, we just try to make the best of it with each other. Miss Layhem always says we have to choose to be joyful, no matter what. So the song is
about choosing to have a really fun and crazy Christmas.

Man, I cant wait to hear that! As you can tell, we like gettin crazy!

get to work!

Well, as long as you think the others wont get jealous. I only have those

HOLLY:

MISS LAYHEM: Yule, Todd, Carol, Id like to introduce you to our choral director, Mr.
Artie Fisheltree.

Scene IV

(MISS LAYHEM and the LOGGINS cheer.)

MISS LAYHEM: That was excellent, children! This is going to be the best Christmas
concert ever! Guess what? Ive got some refreshments set up for you in the
cafeteria, so lets go wait there while the Loggins finish up in here.
(MISS LAYHEM, ARTIE, HOLLY, IVY and the extra KIDS exit SR.)

Todd! Stop it! Somebody needs to throw a stockin of candy at your head!

CAROL:

(CAROL and TODD begin silently decorating the tree on the far end of SL.)
(FELIX walks toward SR to YULE who is sitting at the box of lights.)
Mr. Yule, you still need me to help with the lights?

FELIX:

Sure, son, Id love that! (awkward pause) So, what are you hopin to get
for Christmas this year?

YULE:

We always get a bunch gifts from churches and different groups. We take
turns picking them out of a pile, so you never really know what youre
gonna get.

I

ec W
t

us

FELIX:

So, you dont ever get a gift picked just for YOU?

or

YULE:

No sir, but thats okay. Its not about getting a bunch of gifts anyways. But
it is fun to watch everybody start tearing them open.
Ill bet! (gets an idea) Hey, I know a gift that was given just for you!

FELIX:

Jesus! Hes who the whole season is about anyway! Thats what Miss Layhem is talkin about. And did you know, He wouldve still come even if
youd been the only person on the earth!? You know much about Jesus?

YULE:

Really? What?

ir

YULE:

FELIX:

Do you know why He came?

Fo
r

YULE:

A little. Ive heard stories about Him at Sunday School.

FELIX:
YULE:

Well, Miss Layhem says He came to save us from our sins. She tells us that
He loves us and cares about us.
He sure does, son!

TODD:

Brentwood Kids Music eClub

Can I ask you somethin?

FELIX:

Sometimes I wonder if Jesus loves me so much, why do I live here? Why


didnt my parents want me? Why didnt He let me have a family like you
and the kids I know at school?

YULE:

Anything.

ly

I know its kinda weird, but you know what Id really love to get for Christmas? More than anything a last name! I got dropped off here when I was
a baby, with nothing except a piece of paper that said Felix. I dont even
know when my birthday is. Miss Layhem made it the day that I got here.

I
E

t

us

FELIX:

My goodness! Whatever age you are, youre mighty mature for it. You
know what, Felix? Come to think of it, we are all adopted! Youve heard
that verse John 3:16:

or

YULE:

(A few words into the scripture, FELIX begins to quote it with YULE.)

Fo
r

ir

God made a choice to send Jesus to earth to show us all how much He
loves us. Jesus made a choice to die on a cross for our sins so we could live
with Him forever in heaven. When he died and rose again, He made a way
for all of us to be adopted into His family the family of God. And thats
where we have another choice to make.

FELIX:
YULE:

FELIX:

Whats that?

The choice to become a Christian. Have you done that yet? Or do you
know how?

Not really. Its just been kinda hard for me to believe that Jesus would do
all that for me.

Brentwood Kids Music eClub

E
V
D

For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Thats right.

Copying of this preview prohibited.

Thats a tough one, Felix. I really dont know how to answer you.
Theres just a lot of crazy things that happen to us in this world that we
cant explain or understand, but it all goes back to what we were talkin
about earlier making choices. You gotta make a choice to believe that the
Lord loves you and is always working things together for your good no
matter what. It dont seem like its a good thing that youre here, and you
dont have a family, but you never know what Jesus might have waitin for
ya down the road. This time next year, you might be adopted and livin
with your very own family.

FELIX:

YULE:

Well, He did! And we can wonder all day about the whys and why nots, but
we gotta believe that its all true. Once we do that, we start seeing things a
whole lot differently. I appreciate you bein so honest with me. The Lord
loves for us to tell Him exactly whats in our hearts. He can handle it.
(laughs) He knows it anyway, so there aint no sense in tryin to hide anything from Him. Maybe we could talk to Jesus about all this right now.
Yeah, Id like that.

Scene V

(MISS LAYHEM and KIDS enter SR. She is carrying a Bible.)

MISS LAYHEM: All right, children, settle down!

(walks over to YULE) Yule, may I ask a favor of you?

YULE:

Certainly!

I would be honored.

MISS LAYHEM: Thank you so much!

ly

YULE:

(to the kids) Children, this is Mr. Yule. He and his family have been here all
day getting things ready for our program tonight. Ive asked him to read the
Christmas story about Jesus birth to help us remember what tonight is really all about.
Alrighty then, this heres the story of Jesus birth in the Bible, found in the
book of Luke chapter 2.

I
E
ec W
t

YULE:

or

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census


should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first
census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And
everyone went to their own town to register.

ir

there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping


watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to
them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you
good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11Today in the
town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the
Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in
cloths and lying in a manger.

Fo
r

8And

Brentwood Kids Music eClub

Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to


Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the
house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who
was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While
they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave
birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him
in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

smiles really big and waves back.)

FELIX:

I didnt know you were coming!

FELIX:

MR. NOONAN: (laughs) Well, it was kinda hard to wrap, so we better wait till after the
program.
FELIX:

any Little Debbie cakes, Ding Dongs? Twinkies? You know, real food!

they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who
was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the
word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all
who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But
Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the
things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

MISS LAYHEM: Ive always had a fascination with the meaning of names. And its always been important to me that you all know what your names mean.
Felix, Ive told you many times that your name means favored and successful. Well, when I researched your new last name, I discovered that the
name Noonan means belonging to the Beloved. I believe the Lord is
telling you that His favor has always been on you, and He has given you
great success here. And tonight, He is giving you what youve wanted most
in the world a last name a family a place to belong.

Production Notes
By Jeff Slaughter

Cast of Characters

(In order of appearance)

MR. & MRS. NOONAN: They are both 20-ish to 30-ish. They have just finished the process of
adopting Felix. Very kind and humble.

ly

HOLLY: Confident, cool and level-headed. She and Ivy are best friends even though they are
quite different.
IVY: Sort of an airhead who is easily distracted and slightly self absorbed.

FELIX: Kind hearted and humble. Even though he has had many disappointments in his life, he
respects and loves others well.

us

CAROL LOGGINS: Sassy, headstrong, dramatic and country. Even though shes a tom-boy
who likes to take charge, she has tender heart. You can have a lot of fun with her outfit.

I
E
ec W
t

TODD LOGGINS: His energy level is off the charts! He is comical and childlike which makes
him quite endearing. You can have some fun with his outfit as well country Christmas.

or

YULE LOGGINS: Full of energy, joy and country charm. He is the level-headed one of the
Loggins crew.

ir

Staging

Fo
r

The stage setting is the den/living room of the childrens home. There could be a few Christmas
decorations already out, but not too many since Yule, Todd and Carol have been hired to take
care of that. They will be bringing in boxes and decorating throughout the drama. You could
have a tree on stage ready for Todd and Carol to decorate when they have breaks in their dialogue.

All Because of Christmas with The Family of God


Choreography suggestions are provided on the DVD.

D

ARTIE FISHELTREE: The kids choir director. Hes 40-ish, super schmaltzy and fake. Think
cheesy game show host. Have some fun with his wardrobe, too. Very loud colors and patterns. A
Christmas themed leisure suit would be perfect.

BETH LAYHEM: Director of the childrens home. She can be anywhere from 30-ish to 60-ish.
She is professional, kind and sincere. Very passionate about her work with the children.

Once Felix finishes the opening solo, you could begin a slide show of old Christmas photos collected from kids in the choir, church staff, etc. There is an example of this on the DVD. I used
photos of my family, and towards the end, I included pictures of kids who have been adopted
that I obtained from the America World Adoption Agency.

Feel free to add anything you want to country-fy this song. During the instrumental break, you
could have a few kids dressed in line dancing apparel come out front and lead the choir in the
dance break. Choreography suggestions are provided on the DVD.

NOTES

As an orphan, Felix cant help but long for a family to call his own
especially during the Christmas season. Join him and his friends at the
orphanage as they gear up for a Christmas musical extravaganza
and discover that because of the miraculous birth of Jesus, every
person has a place to belong in His family.

Jeff Slaughter delivers this touching and humorous Christmas event


with dialog and songs that speak to the heart. Kids of all ages will join
in singing as they experience the ultimate adoption story, eternal life
in Christ. Your children will love learning the arrangements in styles
such as a techno, pop, and old school country along with heartfelt,
inspiring ballads.

Felix Finds Christmas combines a set of crazy-fun songs and


a comical yet touching drama with Gods word. At its core, this
entertaining and poignant musical shares the undeniable truth that we are
adopted into the family of God because of Jesus Christ coming to earth to save us all.
In addition to the Split-Track Accompaniment CD, there is also a hands-on, learn
the movements to every song DVD by Jeff Slaughter.
